Tesla's top lawyer leaves two months into the job
Updated : February 21, 2019 06:30 AM IST
Dane Butswinkas, who joined Tesla in December and was reporting to chief executive officer Elon Musk, will return to his previous role as the company's outside counsel at law firm Williams & Connolly.
Jonathan Chang, Tesla's vice president of the legal department, will replace Butswinkas effective immediately, the company said in an email statement to Reuters.
Tesla hired Butswinkas as an outside counsel last year to help settle a case with the US Securities and Exchange Commission after Musk tweeted that he had secured funding to takeTesla private at $420 a share.
